Two bills have been introduced in Connecticut:
- OPPOSE HB 5286, which would impose confusing and non-industry-standard requirements regarding product labeling. CASAA OPPOSES this legislation because rather than serving to inform consumers, HB 5286 would (1) cause confusion and (2) would effectively reduce the availability of e-cigarettes (both hardware and liquid) offered to adult consumers in the state. HB 5286 has been referred to the Public Health Committee, and it has been set for a hearing on FRIDAY, February 28th, 2014 at 10:30 AM in Room 1D of the Legislative Office Building (LOB).
- SUPPORT SB 24, which would ban sales to minors. Unless this bill is amended to include additional restrictions or provisions, CASAA SUPPORTS this bill. SB 24 has been referred to and has been set for a hearing on THURSDAY, February 27th, 2014 at 12 P.M. in Room 2B of the Legislative Office Building (LOB).
